# Why do we need to run certain distance before getting into a moving bus?

## Why do we need to run certain distance before getting into a moving bus?

Inertia is the tendency of an object to reduce a change in its state of motion. But if we run before we enter the moving bus, then we can shift our body’s inertia from rest to in motion and we will feel more comfortable when we enter the bus.

### Why do we need run in the direction of train bus while getting down from a train bus?

While getting down from a moving vehicle a person should always run in the same direction as thar of the vehicle because initially the person has the momentum same as that of the moving vehicle when he is boarding the bus. So, it is always adviced to do so while getting down a moving bus.

Why a man getting out of a moving bus must run in same direction for some distance?

Answer: A man jumping out from a moving bus holds the inertia of motion. So, it is very dangerous to jump out of a moving bus. The inertia of motion causes the passenger of a bus to fall down or temporarily lose his balance as he tries to jump out of the moving bus.

Why does a person run when he gets down a running bus?

When the person steps on the ground, his feet do not move but his upper body moves in the direction of the bus due to inertia of its motion. Since his upper body moves in the forward direction and his lower body does not move, the person falls in the forward direction.

## Why do the passengers get a forward jerk when moving bus stops suddenly?

When a moving bus at high speed suddenly stops, the passenger feels jerk in forwarding direction due to the inertia of motion, which tends to keep the moving body in motion.

### Why do we fall forward if we alight from a moving bus?

Answer: In a moving bus, a passenger moves with the bus due to inertia of motion. As the driver applies brakes, the bus comes to rest. But, the passenger tries to maintain to inertia of motion. Hence, the passenger tends to fall backwards when the bus accelerates forward.

Why Shyam asked RAM to run in the direction of moving bus as soon as he touches the road?

Ram started jumping down from a slow moving bus his friend shyam asked him not to do so as this act would injure him. Ram was not ready to listen his friend shyam. Then shyam asked Ram to run in the direction of moving bus as soon as his foot touches the ground Ram did so and landed safely.

Why do passengers in a moving bus falls forward when it stops suddenly?

The passengers in a bus tend to fall backward when it starts suddenly due to inertia as the passengers tend to remain in the state of rest while the bus starts to move. When the bus stops suddenly, people fall forward because their inertia as they are in state of motion even when the bus has come to rest.

## Why do passengers in a moving bus fall forward when it stops suddenly?

### When a moving bus is suddenly stopped?

A passenger sitting in a moving bus is in motion. When the bus suddenly stops, the lower part of our body is brought to rest along with the bus whereas upper part continues to be in motion due to inertia of motion and hence falls forward.

When suddenly moving bus stops then the person feel jerk in forward direction this is based on which law?

inertia of motion
When a bus or train starts to move suddenly, the passengers sitting in it falls backward. This is due to inertia called inertia of rest. When a moving train stops suddenly, the passengers sitting in it jerk in forward direction. This is due to inertia called inertia of motion.

Why the passengers in a moving car get forward jerk when driver suddenly applies break?

Example The passengers in a running bus fall in the forward direction, when brakes are applied suddenly. It is because when the bus suddenly comes to rest, the passengers on account of inertia of motion tend to continue to move in forward direction and hence fall forward.

## Why do passengers stand in a moving bus when the bus?

When the passengers are standing on the bus they (and the bus) are in a state of uniform motion. When the driver turns the wheel, the bus tires apply a force to the rest of the bus and the bus overcomes its own inertia and starts to turn.

### Why do feet move when a bus turns?

A2A: When the bus turns, it can only influence the passenger through the point of contact between the bus and the person. For clarity, let us assume a standing passenger. So, if the bus turns left, the feet move left following the floor (due to frictional contact between the bus and the feet; that is the feet experience a force to the left.

What happens when a bus makes a sharp turn?

For a standing passenger, his/her body will tend to continue along the straight line route the bus was travelling before the sharp turn. As the passenger’s feet are fairly firmly located to the floor of the bus when it turns, a force will act upon the passenger’s feet accelerating them towards the centre of the turn.

Why does a bus turn when the driver turns the wheel?

When the driver turns the wheel, the bus tires apply a force to the rest of the bus and the bus overcomes its own inertia and starts to turn. Inside the bus each passenger’s inertia wants to just keep going in the same uniform motion they had before the bus started to turn.
